Put a Little Zip in Your Zoom
I don’t think the founders of Telecommuter Appreciation Week could have anticipated its worldwide adoption. The date is a tribute to telephone pioneer Alexander Graham Bell because it’s always the week of his birthday (March 3).
Since much of the working world experienced telecommuting in 2020, many millions of people learned to say “you’re on mute” on cue. Zoom became the breakout star of the online meeting world, and they continue to innovate faster than anyone else.
Zoom is always adding features, and you’ll be the coolest kid in the Zoom block party if you learn the new tricks first. Keep your software updated (easier now that you can automate updates) and drop by the Zoom blog now and then to see what’s new.
